One of the main functions of the Regulatory Council is spreading the culture associated with Sherry wines. Our wines undoubtedly demonstrate peculiarities and a richness that make training an instrument necessary for both enjoyment and adequate understanding.
Through classroom training, we offer professionals and enthusiasts a set of materials that allows them to delve into aspects as diverse as the history, production, or the simple enjoyment of Sherry wines.
The training classroom of the Regulatory Council periodically organizes courses and seminars of varying lengths and subject matter. In some cases, they are specially designed for specific groups of professionals, such as trainers, sommeliers, or restaurant and bar staff. In other cases, the sessions are open to all wine lovers. In all cases, classroom training offers certifications in homologation or attendance.
The training classroom is also a place where trained professionals can be found, coming from numerous countries, who specialize in teaching about our wines and are authorized by the Regulatory Council.
